A 1/72 scale British boat.
« on: 18 Aug , 2010, 14:33 »
It would be nice, no, terrific, if we could get Airfix to get off their bum and come out with a British T class or S class WW2 boat.  I mention Airfix only because they've alsways favored British military subjects and since Revell's already committed to two major kits, their Type VII and Gato boats.  Anyone interested?

Certainly interested!
It's a bit strange, that so few Brittish subs are available.
And not a single in 1/72.

S = classic, that would be popular I'd think.

I have this in the works  @ 1:72 scale. Anyone have a specific boat in mind?

I think, for the T class, the Tally-Ho P317, for the S class the Seraph P219, and for the U class, the Upholder N99.  I've been sending nuisance Emails to Airfix trying to get them into the game.  What do you have up your sleeve, Mike?

Early version or 1944, or both?

Mike, I personally would love the Seraph in her WW2 configuration, but, any British boat from any period in 1/72nd scale would be terrific.

I forgot to mention that I have an M1  in 1:72 scale.  We have the dive planes, rudder and gun already molded. I'm waiting on Mr. Merriman to produce the first hull from the molds.  Anyone interested?  I can speed this up if required.  Looking at about $300 for the kit.

Aw mate, I would be so interested. I dont know why I am so into submarines. I just love the lines of the 40`s boats. British subs are not given the recognition they deserve, and in that scale, it would be a work of art. Airfix were my favourite manufacturer when I was a kid. Get them to do it and I will buy one defo!

Jawohl herr Kaleun!

Here is an update of the progression of the T Class model

The plug is now being filled carefully and sanded down. More to come.
